Channels is a charity dedicated to enhancing social mobility in the East Midlands via access to higher education and the professions. We deliver a blended schools outreach activities to schools in need, specifically tailored for the unique challenges posed by the region, that raises pupils aspirations and equips them to arrive and thrive in elite universities and competitive professions. Examples of our outreach activities include career panels with professionals across a range of sectors, E-Mentoring, and access to our E-Learning platform for school pupils – The Channels Academy.
We work with leading employers and elite universities to inspire students, opening their eyes to the world of opportunity that exists outside of the East Midlands. We aim to stop pupils limiting themselves to their local university and labour market, instead encouraging them to look further afield and back themselves to go that distance.
